Had to edit this...Dale Cakes...LOL...the shrills were Bobby's territory...! Not gonna debate, just going to share my opinion. Donna took more than she added....there were dozens of PITB where her shrilly screams were startling. Like scary, in a ugh kind of way. I have no personal issues with Donna Jean, she seems to be a fine woman, I hope she has had a wonderful existence on our planet --- but her participation in the Band was not a good thing. As Dale points out...Bobby territory, the sticker read "Bobby Spit On Me" - not Donna.

If you can't hang with Donna then don't fuckin' listen. she was just as much a part of the band as any of them. she trucked it out on the road with them for almost 10 years. LAY OFF!!!!!!!!!!

In response to Babyblu's comment... How dare you say that Donna was 'just as much a part of the band as any of them'. Please tell me you are joking. It is a sacrelige to even think that Donna is within light years of Jerry's contributions to the Annals of Music.
I love the Bobby fakeout at 7.06 of Samson, he led Donna right into the chorus and then quickly changed it up. Everyone in the Coliseum was on the same page as the boys, except Donna Jean. Thats what Donna gets for trying to one-up Bobby's screaming. Everyone knows that random shreiks, screams, and shrills are Bobby's territory.
Maybe one of the best under the radar shows out there.
78 is very forgotten and underrated

Pay particular attention to the Samson in 2nd set and the truly amazing Scarlet>Fire that follows...has both hard rocking energy and beautiful stretches of mellow gold (Keith shines in the transition into Fire)...The Estimated also is a treat and the first set contains well-played rockin renditions of half step and bobby's cowboy tunes.

Have to disagree with one of the comments on an old version. Donna may be better here than in some other shows of this vintage, but she's still a flat, generally off-key, horribly-inflected shrieking howler. She just kills Deal...
I think her presence during the Dead's salad says is one of the great tragedies of rock & roll history. Especially given that since with the arrival of Brent in late '79 Bobby's guitar practically dropped out of the mix in many shows, she's barfing all over some of the finest rhythm guitar playing that we have good recordings of. It's just unfortunate.
Still, this show ranks quite high. I'd give it a 4/5 stars (or 9 out of 10) if I could, but out of the spirit of generosity learned in no small part at my couple of hundred shows, it gets a 5.
